Honors Program Selects Students for Entering Class
Northwestern University’s baccalaureate/MD degree program, in which students complete three years of undergraduate work on the Evanston campus before entering the Feinberg School, has completed the admissions process for next fall’s entering class.
A total of 509 applicants (up from 398 in 2002) vied for 45 available positions. Members of the entering class in the Honors Program for Medical Education have outstanding academic records. For example, the average combined verbal and math SAT scores for this group is 1536 of a possible 1600. The class will include three students from underrepresented minority groups.
Established in 1961, the Honors Program offers gifted and highly motivated students a broad and challenging undergraduate program free from many of the pressures related to gaining acceptance to medical school. Students are admitted simultaneously to one of three undergraduate schools at Northwestern and the Feinberg School.
